Audyssey Pro is only for Europe, not US models.
I'll be curios to follow up on Gurkey's comments.. it makes no sense that anything could change without a re-measurement of Audyssey... interesting..
EDIT: I read through the general 5009 thread...
2 people commented on the sound quality, and one did re-measure:
Have been measured again after the update, new and more precise. This time the result is really
well, even the sub was well calibrated. Now I am very satisfied with the sound
Calibration! XT32 measure in my opinion a little less fine with the "rough trowel", ie
and more accurate. If I turn off Audyssey, the difference is usually not such a big but
with Audyssey is the sound for me sharper, more precise, cleaner. No worlds but already clearly audible.
Oviously we all know how picky calibrations are and if you don't precisely measure in exactly the same place the results can be vasty different....
That being said, Onkyo in particular has messed up FW in the past that adversely affected calibrations... not saying they couldn't improve it... just seems anecdotal at best.
